Description
In this eye-opening look at our Founding Fathers that is full of fun facts and lively artwork, it seems that Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and their cohorts sometimes agreed on NOTHING…except the thing that mattered most: creating the finest constitution in world history, for the brand-new United States of America. For many of us, the phrase “Founding Fathers" calls to mind a stodgy group of Very Serious Men who signed important documents, created laws, and calmly shaped America into the country it is today. But the truth is, from George Washington to Alexander Hamilton, Patrick Henry to Samuel Adams, the Founding Fathers were only human. They often had no idea if their ideas and efforts would help the newborn nation or rip it apart at its seams. They bickered, they shouted-some of them didn't even like each other! Yet despite all of this, they managed to draft the US Constitution, the document by which we still live, to this day. Each of these men-George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, James Madison, John Jay, Patrick Henry, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Thomas Paine, Gouverneur Morris, Benjamin Rush, and John Marshall-is represented by a portrait and a mix of fun and important facts-set up just like stats on a baseball card! Find out how tall Thomas Jefferson was; how Benjamin Franklin felt about slavery; who owned the most sheep, what their favorite sayings were, and who was once escorted by fifty horsemen with their sabres drawn. You will never think about the Founding Fathers the same way again!
